transport to South Germany
Posted by Verena on 10-08-2018

Absolut amazing!! We used Barry and I can highly recommend him. He did everything for our 2 Ponies to make the long journey to South Germany comfortable for them. They were calm and relaxed when they arrived. The prices for transport are very reasonable. I would recommend you to anybody without any doubt. Thank you very much for all you have done.

Hope you had a good journey home as well.

If you are looking for horse transport I would highly recommend Barry he came and collected my very anxious Arab mare recently and took her to a new home. He was fantastic, this was a very emotional situation for me and he dealt with both me and my horse brilliantly. A very kind, calm and helpful person who just took control of the situation and made sure everything went smoothly. THANK YOU so much Barry will definitely be in touch again if I need a lorry again.

Outstanding service provided by Barry. After booking a ‘less experienced’ company to deliver a horse (who was a seasoned traveller) had actually brought the horse back when it became slightly unsettled- probably due to restricted space and poor driving. I called Barry who bent over backwards to help resolve the situation and collected the horse the following day where he ensured the horse had plenty of room he drove with care and kept me and the new owner informed all the way and the horse travelled perfectly. He is a real horseman and his lorries are well built and immaculately clean. He is worth every penny. I now wouldn’t use anyone else. Thank you so much Barry.

I would like to thank Barry for the excellent service he gave us and our 2 horse’s while transporting them from Devon to Limousin in France. Barry has a great personality and a relaxed however professional manner. We were kept updated throughout the journey of their progress, which reassured us of their wellbeing. I could not believed how calm and relaxed the horses were on their arrival and totally unphased by the long journey. It is clear to see that horses are a love and life style to Barry and not just an occupation. I would certainly use Barry again and would recommend him to others. Thanks again Barry.

Barry transported my horse from Switzerland to the UK and I have been impressed at how calm my horse was when he arrived in his new home. Barry called me during the journey to give me news and took care of my horse as if he was his own. I can definitely recommend him and will use him again when/if we return to Switzerland. Thank you Barry!

We could not have found a more ideal transporter for moving our two draft horses to Ireland. Barry was so particular about their welfare, taking time and trouble to ensure their well being throughout the journey. The horses arrived calm and cool despite many hours travelling by road and sea. The vehicle is well equipped, clean and maintained with pride. We were very fortunate to find someone who cares so much for his cargo. Thank you Barry, we would recommend you without hesitation.

I cannot praise Barry enough for the excellent service he gave us, transporting our new 2 year old from Exeter to Glasgow. Barry phoned to let us know his progress throughout the journey. Otis arrived completely chilled out. What a lovely man, he took care of our horse like it was his own. Well deserved 5 stars. Would recommend Barry to anyone.

Fabulous Service! I called several companies and Barry gave me the best price and a convenient time to suit delivering my new horse. He took amazing care of the horse and kept me updated during the journey to advise me on how he was doing. Excellent service, friendly and considerate, trustworthy, good price and most importantly takes great care of the horses as if they were his own! I would recommend him everytime.

Just want to say a very big thank you to Barry, who transported my two mares from the south of France to Dartmoor. The service was excellent, horses were relaxed when they arrived, and Barry was in contact with us all the way. I would recommend him for all horse transport, lovely man.
Thank you and we will keep in contact.

What can i say except that this service is the out and out best.Barry is the most friendly,considerate and easy going person,he has a beautiful lorry,and he made something very stressful on previous occasions using other transport services an absolute pleasure for me and the horse.Barry listened to my requests without making me feel like a typical fussy horse owner,in fact he made me feel like nothing was too much trouble.He was very understanding,and after the horse had been picked up and was on the way he rang to tell me all was well and when to expect him.Barry put my mind at ease from start to finish! My new horse,of which Barry was very complimentary,arrived fully protected,very calm and content with still some hay after over four hours of travelling.I would not consider using another transporter again after meeting Barry.He is the best at his job,and we are very grateful to him for a truly first class service.Thank you Barry,and thank you my horse network.

Hi – Cant speak highly enough arrange to collect a new pony. Barry arrive on the dot and kept me informed of his progress through the journey and how the pony was travelling – Gave me an ETA and was 7 mins over so i knew what time to expect them and get myself organised for the arrival.
She arrived safe and well and no distress what so ever – he was in no rush and took time out to talk about the journey so what to expect in the future when we go off travelling again. So A BIG BIG thank you Barry for first sorting out the mess in the first instant and getting the pony delivered
not for me but the vendor. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED> will def use you again when required.

Excellent five star service in everyway, Barry couldnt have been more helpful when we needed a new horse transported who was very poor and under wieght. He was professional and caring at all times and put the best interest of the horse first. Barry handled the horse with great understanding as like all horses going to a new home, he was rather unsure. We would highly recommend Barry for his transport and will defenatly use him again if needed. Great prices and even better service. A massive thankyou for all your help Barry, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I stumbled across Barry & Sue’s B&B whilst looking for somewhere to take a break with our horses, and then discovered the added bonus that Barry could transport our horses for us, leaving my daughter and I free to drive down to their farm later in the day. Barry could not have been more helpful and handled our horses (one not great at loading) really well and they arrived very relaxed. The return journey was equally trouble free, making our short break on Exmoor very enjoyable. We will certainly use Barry’s transport services again and if you are looking for a beautiful place to stay with your horse on Exmoor, I highly recommend Middle Upcott Farm.

Barry will always be my first choice if I need horse transportation. I have used him several times and it has always been a very pleasant experience. The horses are always happy and I know they will receive the best care, even on long journeys. Can’t thank you enough.

Hi Barry, a big thank you for organising the safe and secure transportation of my filly all the way from Ipswich to Devon!
Even though it was Friday of a Bank Holiday week end and you were both travelling alot longer than expected, she arrived calm and stress free. She is only rising 3 and second time in a lorry and spent so many hours travelling, yet the next day she was so relaxed. I put this down to your professionalism and will definately use you again should the need arise! Many Thanks.
Best Wishes Paul

I have recently hired a horsebox to pick up an unbroken 5yr old horse from cornwall to take back home to sussex, but it all went wrong, she tried too jump the breastbar twice, so came back with an empty box! But today Barry has done a wonderful job in transporting my nervous horse 300 miles, with out a problem, nothing is to much trouble, the horses welfare is paramount, he certainly knows his job and suggested the best way of doing this journey. Would recommend to anyone, and would definatley use again. 6th may 2013. Thanks again Jo.

"...a great site I've used often - especially for my brood mares to go off to studs and long journeys - every person I've used has been professional, reliable and done a great job - it's saved a lot of time and money!"


"...used this site for a journey from Berkshire to Lancashire and was quoted a great price from a transporter who needed to fill an empty box on a return journey. Highly recommend!"


 I've been so impressed with HayNet. Transporters on your website are so geared up to enquiries and when I have used HayNet I have had lots of responses very quickly and appropriately, giving me the chance to research the company as well as comparing prices before making a decision. The one I chose offered an individual run which suited myself and the vendor as we were both shielding due to COVID.
